Call of Duty Modern Warfare – Shuts down my PC -[solved]

After almost 7 months of this problem and having tried everything i read about it, i decided to run a temperature monitoring program in the background while i played the game.

When i posted this problem on reddit every post i read said to check temps.  Now i never overclock any PC hardware so i thoughts thats not the problem, i was wrong.

BIOS Settings:
There was a setting in the BIOS of the motherboard i had that was called ‘AMD TURBO-CORE’ which would over clock the CPU and cause an increase the temperature of the CPU.

TLDR/Long story Short/i dont care:
The CPU i had was an AMD FX 8350 and normally it would be around 70C Max load.  However this bios setting made temps hit 82C+  and thats where the PC would shut down as a measure to protect it from damage.

Suggestions for various websites that havnt worked;

  • v-sync on in the graphics settings
  • set ‘custom frame limit’ in game to 60 fps see GFX settings
  • turned off the NVIDIA in game overlay
  • shutdown almost everything running in background;
    • steam, Ea Origin,Epic Launcher
  • disabled Hyper-V
  • disabled Windows 10 fast start up
  • Power settings CPU min state 0%
  • Set max Framerate of Graphics card in the NVIDIA Control Panel to 60fps.
  • Cleaned all Fans in the PC case.
  • changed default sound format to 44100 mhz
  • AA SMAA 1x
  • Texture Filter Anisotropic filtering: Normal
  • uninstall Realtek Audio & LAN drivers
  • Reinstall Windows 10

The most relaxing song in the world Scientifically proven – “Marconi Union – Weightless”

The most relaxing song in the world-scientificlaly proven and if your thinking huh well yeah i was too but there are many articles on this track.

Even when you google “relaxing song reduces anxiety stress” you get the same song and its easy to see why.

A new study by US researchers has revealed that playing the “world’s most relaxing song” before surgery could be just as beneficial for calming a patient’s nerves as medication.

Patients in the trial were either given the drug midazolam or played the song “Weightless” by the British ambient band Marconi Union for three minutes, while having an anaesthetic to numb a region of the body.

The song performed well as a sedative in the study of 157 people, although patients said they would have preferred to choose their own music.

“Weightless” was written by the UK band Marconi Union in 2012 specifically to reduce anxiety, blood pressure and heart rate.

RIP Total Biscuit

This guy was the first “youtube” celeb i heard of back when Wow was  huge, around 2006 id guess.

He was one the first people i followed over to youtube from his podcasts about Word of Warcraft.  I remember when i got into World of Warcraft i used to listen to his “Blue Please” podcasts.  He had a fantastic passion for talking about games with his “WTF is ” series.  He was a great gamer consumer advocate.

When a games company did something underhanded he called them out and i salute him for every thing he did.

Below he chats with Etan and Hila from H3H3 Productions on youtube about cancer and its well worth a watch.  This man’s attitude to the fight he had was remarkable.

RIP

RIP John Bain aka Total Biscuit

Help his wife gemma by donating here to the offical fund;

Many of you know the incredible TotalBiscuit aka John Bain.  Many of you also know that he’s been publicly fighting cancer for the last 4 years and recently passed from that fight.

John has had an incredible game’s media career that spans at least 13 years.  During that time he’s covered countless games including World of Warcraft and Starcraft 2 and it would be pretty hard to make a full list of games he’s supported.  He was a journalist, entertainer, critic, philanthropist, and general good dude.  And he was one of the best.

In this career there are no medical plans, no retirement funds, and no golden parachutes.  The financial resources available are limited to the support of viewers and advertisers.  John’s family Genna & Orion are faced with short and long term challenges around housing, living expenses, income security, medical care, and the special needs of Orion (their son).

Please join me in supporting Genna and Orion in this very trying time to help take one burden off their shoulders.

Note: I have personally talked to Genna.  She knows and is very appreciative of anyone showing their support.  Genna is the only person who can withdrawl from this gofundme.

Note to streamers: If you’re looking to support the family, you can use this campaign if you want to raise money and have it go directly to them.

Getting started with Python and the Django Framework part 1

So over the christmas holidays ive been keeping myself busy by learning more about the Python language.

Having learnt a few basics i started to try the Django framework which ive seen mentioned quite a lot.  Im reffering to windows mainly in this case see below for more detailed instructions;
https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/2.0/howto/windows/

Step 1:
Install python from the site below and install the necessary version for your Operating system.
https://www.python.org/downloads/release/python-364/

Step 2:
Once you get that installed, verify that python is installed by typing “python” from the windows command prompt;

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 3:
Install Django framework via command prompt;

pip install django

Step 4:
Create your first project its best to refer to the offical document and tutorials at;
https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/2.0/intro/tutorial01/

From the offical site;

Creating a project

If this is your first time using Django, you’ll have to take care of some initial setup. Namely, you’ll need to auto-generate some code that establishes a Django project – a collection of settings for an instance of Django, including database configuration, Django-specific options and application-specific settings.

From the command line, cd into a directory where you’d like to store your code, then run the following command:

$ django-admin startproject mysite

This will create a mysite directory in your current directory. If it didn’t work, see Problems running django-admin.
